The Old Masters – re-interpreted 129

The Widdle of the Meek….Today has nothing to do with urine samples of the timid; but it is a spoonerism for the ‘middle of the week’ or Wednesday [some readers might need to have it spelled out – FFC], which is the time when the timid, the geeks, the art cognoscenti and the intellectual elite gather at this site to cast their own interpretations on the Old Masters in the form of an appropriate caption.

Today’s victim is Pierre Carrier-Belleuse, whose wife, rumour has it,  was known as ‘The Carrier Bag’.

PierreCarrierBelleuse - Dear Mum - Im not happy about the part I got in Swan Lake - Im a lifeguard

Dear Mum, thanks to your influence and interference, I have now been given a part in Swan Lake. For the first time in history, Tchaikovsky’s ballet will feature a life guard.


About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
